> In some cases, the VM_PKT_COMP message can arrive later than RNDIS completion
> message, which will free the packet memory. This may cause panic due to access
> to freed memory in netvsc_send_completion().
> This patch fixes this problem by removing rndis_filter_send_request_completion()
> from the code path. The function was a no-op.
